Maine State Music Theatre

MPBN is excited to be partnering with the Maine State Music Theatre (it is their 56th season!) in Brunswick and share the news of some really wonderful productions they are putting on at the Pickard Theater on the Bowdoin College campus this summer.

7 Brides for 7 Brothers

"Goin’ courtin'" has never been so much fun!

Bursting with rambunctious energy, SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS is the rip-roaring story of Millie, a young bride living in 1850s Oregon wilderness. Her plan to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage backfires when the enthusiastic brothers take matters into their own hands. The biggest dance spectacle to hit the main stage since 42nd Street! Sing, dance and laugh till it hurts!

Footloose

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the Pickard stage with this exhilarating show.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind. "Let’s Hear it for the Boy" and the title song "Footloose" will leave you dancing out of the theatre.
